Discovered by a hunter looking for his dog, Che Chem Ha (“Cave of the Poisonwood Water”) is in the foot-hills of the Maya mountains. Located in the upper Macal River Valley, the cave is one quarter of a mile long and is a dry cave. The cave was first rediscovered in the 1980’s and was explored and mapped until the 1990’s. To access this cave we have to drive half an hour form San Ignacio 10 min on the western highway towards the Guatemalan boarder then 20 min south off Benque Viejo town. This cave has some of the earliest recorded dates of the Mayan ceremonies in caves. This is one of the caves that archaeologists have recorded some of the largest ceramic vessels, a lot of this ceramic has been set above the floor level and has to be accessed by ladders. To explore this cave ceremonial chambers ropes and ladders are needed. After exploring this dry cave we hike back and can finish the day at a small water fall with a height of 214 ft.
